Useful information

The route is easier by starting on the northern slope of Gastlosen. Indeed, the passage of the “Wolfs Ort” is easier to climb than downhill. We strongly advise against this hike in rainy weather. Downhill trails are slippery, even in dry weather. Along the southern slope of the Gastlosen, you will have many opportunities to organize your picnic.

For the “aficionados” of the elevation gain, you can go up and down on foot instead of taking the chairlift.
